“A Monstrous Shape

..or A Shapeless Monster” A description of a female creature born in Holland, compleat in every part save only a head like a swine. Printed in London 1639, this is another story of a pig faced woman. This time, she’s well dressed with a tabbed bodice, fancy collar, ¬†full petticoats and nicely heeled shoes. Hopefully she made enough money to keep the wolf from the door!
